V&A video: Horst in Colour showcases John Jones services
11 September 2014
The V&A have released a new video Horst in Colour. It reveals the process of creating new colour prints for their current exhibition Horst: Photographer of Style.
The V&A team worked closely with specialists at the Condé Nast Archive and expert printer Ken Allen to select and print from Horst's early transparencies, which date from the 1930s to the 1950s. The film includes insights into Horst's dynamic approach from model Carmen Dell'Orefice and Vogue's International Editor at Large, Hamish Bowles. This film also documents the prints dry mounting and framing process completed by the John Jones team.
Visit Horst: Photographer of Style at the V&A until 4 January 2015 to see how our frames compliment his photographs. For more information on the work we did for this exhibition please follow the link.
